The Australian proposal for a regional cooperation in safety culture of nuclear
energy was agreed upon in the “7th Conference for Nuclear Cooperation
in Asia (ICNCA)” sponsored by the Atomic Energy Commission of Japan
held in Tokyo in March 1996. Based on this agreement, the Nuclear Safety Culture
Project has been promoted under the initiative of Australia. Japan has supported
this project in the technical area of Nuclear Safety Culture.
Overall Objective of the Project
To establish a forum for exchange of information among countries
on safety culture developments.
To encourage the adoption of safety culture principles in each
country in national policies for non-power reactor facilities.
To develop methods for evaluating safety culture implementation
and to report on such indicators of safety culture on
an annual basis.
To encourage the application of the Nuclear Safety
Convention principles to research reactors.
